This unit of imaginary correspondence between animals will delight your young readers as they build their reading comprehension skills!
Howl N. Dog has eight puppies and every time they start to go to sleep, Ted E. Bear begins to growl in the nearby woods. “…My puppies cry all night because they are afraid that you are coming to gobble them up!” writes Ms. Dog to Mr. Bear in a letter.
“I carried a bag of walnuts to the edge of the woods as a gift for you,” concludes Ms. Dog. “You may gobble up all the walnuts. Please don’t growl.”
In addition to 24 reading and comprehension exercises, students are encouraged to respond to some of the letters, create cards for others, and even draw a comic strip.
